Fantasia in G major 'Pièce d'orgue', BWV572
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
That Bach was capable of great harmonic richness (even if less consistently organized) not only in his maturity is seen in the central section of the Fantasia in G major, BWV572. Dating from 1705/7, and also known as Pièce d’Orgue, this three-sectioned piece is remarkable for the consistency with which the single idea that comprises each section is pursued. A toccata of patterned chords, and a coda of acciaccatura-strewn broken chords, enclose a French-influenced panoply of continuously eliding five-part harmony.
